The Unbearable Banishment: Here, Kitty Kitty

Here, Kitty Kitty

Here’s my favorite line from Manohla Dargis’s New York Times review of Woody Allen’s Vicky Christina Barcelona. In regards to Scarlett Johansson’s performance, she writes:

She isn’t much of an actress, but it doesn’t terribly matter in his films: She gives him succulent youth, and he cushions her with enough laughs to distract you from her lack of skill.

Meeeyowww! Women do NOT like Scarlett Johansson! I had a friend who once told me she and her girlfriends use to sit around and take turns saying terrible things about poor Miss J. Call me crazy, but I think she has tremendous appeal. She is the antithesis of Nicole Kidman. Ms. Kidman is a classic beauty who doesn’t project an ounce of sexuality. The Ice Princess. That’s not a good thing if you’re an actress. My Scarlett, on the other hand, has an ordinary look about her but radiates animal magnetism. Yum! Do you know who else use to be like that? Susan Sarandon. Not a great beauty but I’m pretty sure she could rip me limb from limb. In the good way.

Yeah, you can add my girlfriend to that long list of women who hate Scarlett. I think she's kinda bland most of the time, and I loved her in Lost In Translation. Girl W/ A Pearl Earring's another one.

Oh yeah, she's also, um, mildly, attractive. Four omelettes for sure.

so it would appear to be the "ladies who lust" who think scarlett is beautiful.

the "seriously straight" chicks can't see the appeal

I can't recall ever seeing an SJ movie, so I can't comment on her ability, but she is very pretty.

I love Susan S. One of my very favorite actors.

Oh, and since her forehead "froze", Kidman just scares me. She is the poster child for women who confuse aging gracefully with ugly hag.
